Very Wooly Sheep – level 1

11-08-2022 15:00

This news is from Australia. It is about a sheep. His name is Chris. Chris lives in the wild. People do not shear him. His wool just grows and grows.

Chris gets really big. He has 40 kilograms of wool on him. Normally, he has 4 to 5 times less wool. Chris is in danger. People must shear him. Five men make him sleep and they shear him.

Difficult words: in the wild (in nature not changed by people), shear (to cut wool).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
